As a company founded out of a frustration with the old way of doing things, Aerona has always been firmly focused on the future of dentistry & practice management.
Investing in product development to bring award-winning innovations such as 100% Cloud-based solutions; in-built tele-dentistry; and a suite of online patient engagement tools has been a key part of this, but so has supporting the next generation of young dental professionals to enter the sector.
Aerona is proud to sponsor the Dental Student of the Year Award at Donegal’s Atlantic Technical University, and to provide the software solution that students are taught on - preparing them to use the very latest practice management solutions from the moment they begin their studies.
For Aerona, it is vital that our product is placed into the hands of the youngest, brightest, and best dental students - allowing these digital natives the opportunity to give detailed feedback on the usability and functionality that AeronaClinic offers; and for the students it is essential that they are able to learn on the latest and most modern Practice Management software.
Using Aerona ensures that they get to experience and understand the widest possible range of tools and solutions available, meaning that even if they begin work in a non-Aerona practice with a more limited range of functions, they are still able to use them all from the get-go and hit the ground running in their new career.
More than that, at the practical level using Aerona has been a game-changer for ATU and their students. This year's Student of the year, Kira Williams, credits Aerona’s access any time, from any device functionality as being central to her academic success as she juggled a busy family and working life with being a full-time student.
‘The ability to log in from home after hours meant that I was able to do my work with Aerona when it suited me and when I knew I could focus fully on it. I didn’t have to be in college or our training practice to get my work done or follow-up on appointments or treatment planning, I could just login on my phone or laptop and get it all done from home or wherever I happened to be, whenever I had the chance.’
This functionality translates directly over into Practice - with remote access allowing planning for the next day, or updating on the last one, to be done securely and safely at your convenience. Allied to the instant messaging and task management functions, Aerona offers the students the kind or practical functionality that they have come to expect from all of the software that they commonly use outside of work and study.
Another key feature is the detailed real-time analytics and deep-data metrics that Aerona provides, allowing the students to get an advanced understanding of the business of dentistry, as well as the clinical knowledge that they need.
The ability to understand KPI’s like ADY’s and Chair Occupancy, and the factors that might influence them, gives real added value to all users of Aerona, but for students it means that they are stepping into practice with their eyes wide open and alive to business growth opportunities from day one.
Our partnership with ATU is important to us and delivers shared benefits for students and for us, as we continue to drive innovation and shape the future of practice management.
